I am pleased to share that Ashmead School offers a breakfast club before school.
Your child is able to arrive from 7:45am where they will be greeted and supervised daily by members of Ashmead staff who will prepare breakfast for them in our climbing hall. Breakfast will comprise of choices such as toast (with or without jam), a variety of cereals, beans on toast, pancakes, yoghurts and fresh fruit with fruit juice, tea or water to drink. There will also be the opportunity to be heard read. In September 2017, we launched our 'Feed and Read' service whereby children have the opportunity to enjoy their breakfast with their friends and then tuck into a range of engaging, enjoyable and exciting books, annuals, magazines and newspapers. The children can read with friends, individually, to an adult and we have even trained some children to be peer readers.
The school office manages all payments for breakfast club and these need to be made in advance. Places need to be booked by 3:30pm on the Thursday of the week before, for the purpose of ensuring we have sufficient staff to supervise the children and making sure we order the correct amount of food for the following week. No children will be accepted at breakfast club without prior booking and late booking forms will not be accepted.
The cost per day is £2.50. If you would like your child to attend breakfast club please collect and fill in a booking form from the school office. I think the opportunity for children to meet for breakfast daily will not only be something that they will enjoy but also ensure that their minds and bodies are well fuelled for a day at school.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to come and see me or give me a ring at school.
